Motif combines data science and automation to create an innovative new model of thematic investing
Why Thematic Investing Matters
Thematic investing is the art of identifying long-term transformative changes around the world and understanding how they impact the financial markets. Whether it is the inevitable impact of an aging population or the growing ubiquity of artificial intelligence—these seismic changes are going to drive disproportionate growth in the economy. This creates real opportunity for long-term investors. Motif is turning the art of thematic investing into a science through the use of cutting-edge technologies.
Creating Value Through Technology
Motif applies a rigorous, technology-driven approach to thematic investing. We sift through terabytes of data to uncover important trends driving the economy and identify companies with exposure to these trends. We then use automation to turn these dynamic models into financial products for both individual and professional investors.
Access the World of Thematic Investing
Artificial Intelligence: The next revolution in AI isn’t about computing, it’s redefining how we communicate, how we work and what it is to be human.
Aging Population: It influences more than just a rise in healthcare. It reshapes global societies – from urbanization to pensions to political stability.

Investing in securities involves risks, you should be aware of prior to making an investment decision, including the possible loss of principal. An investment in individual stocks, or a collection of stocks focused on a particular theme or idea, such as a motif, may be subject to increased risk of price fluctuation over more diversified holdings due to adverse developments which can affect a particular industry or sector. Investments in ETFs can include those with a narrow or targeted investment strategy and can be subject to similar sector risks than more broadly diversified investments. Motif makes no representation regarding the suitability of a particular investment or investment strategy. You are responsible for all investment decisions you make including understanding the risks involved with your investment strategy.
